Don’t let the door hit you as you exit.

Ralph W. Sockman (you really should google him) said, among MANY OTHER THINGS:

“The test of courage comes when we are in the minority. The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.”

I’m splitting this into two parts.

Part One:

“The test of courage comes when we are in the minority.”

Now, most of my friends and I are in the minority at the moment, and it isn’t pretty. We need a little sustenance. So, let us turn back time and listen once again to Longfellow, who frankly was a good kid when he had it.

“Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.”

And to any of you Trump supporters who may still be (ma)lingering on my blog – this second part is for YOU.

Part Two:

The test of tolerance comes when we are in the majority.”

If you cannot do that –

Please don’t let the door hit you on your way OUT.
